Product Description

This Guide provides an overview of the available advanced methods for designing structures for fire resistance and should be read in conjunction with Introduction to the fire safety engineering of structures, which presents a range of simple design approaches and useful background information.

Structural fire design brings together the disciplines of structural engineering and fire engineering, to allow a performance-based design approach to be carried out which can allow more economic, robust, innovative and complex buildings to be constructed. Here, each stage of the advanced design process (modelling the fire, determining the heat transfer to the structure and high temperature structural analysis) is discussed, with guidance on the various approaches which can be adopted.

Case studies are included to show how the methods presented can be applied to obtain a better understanding of the structural behaviour during a fire.
